Thanks for the tip-off Russell.  You can also listen to the actual recorded
broadcast from the above link too which is great.

Robyn Williams, in his precursor to the interview, says -

"Why do we get such a boost from seeing birds? I once asked this of Bill
Oddie of the Goodies, who's a twitcher and comes to Australia to go birding.
He gave me an excellent answer which was at least two hours long and will
have to wait until another day."

I'd love to hear Oddie's answer !
